John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

This verb is used 44 times in the KJV.

 

The 3rd person form is "wist" (13x).

 

The 1st person form is "wot" (10x).

 

The infinitive form is "wit" (21x).

 

Without checking a dictionary and without checking the KJV for context how many of you know, just off the top of your head, what this verb means?  Please be honest.
